Edge out the competition in Washington

Washington's legal cannabis market continues to thrive and we couldn't be more thrilled to be partnered with some of the leading operators in the state. Whether you are a botique business or a large, multi-state operation, MJ Freeway's seed to sale software for Washington not only gaurentees your compliance, but it will improve your bottom line. 

MJ Platform is more than cannabis compliance tracking, more than seed-to-sale software, more than dispensary POS. MJ Platform is a true enterprise solution for managing your entire operation in Washington.

MJ Platform uses historical data, including customer purchase history and traffic patterns, to predict future product demands. This historical data is compared to the current inventory your store has on hand. The result: you’re alerted when you need to order more of a product. You don’t lose sales because you’ve run of product before a new order comes. And you don’t stock your shelves with too much product that you won’t sell through. And, because time is money, MJ Platform takes inventory efficiency a step further by allowing you to set automatic re-order criteria to place orders and receive invoices within the system between you and suppliers. You save time and ensure you’re never caught without the product or supplies you need.
